The WATSON AND HOLMES Kickstarter needs a lot more help if we’re going to make it to $20,000!  If we make it, you’ll get to see my adapated versions of “The Solitary Cyclist,” starring Violette Okeke-Smith, as well as “A Scandal in Bohemia,” starring the infamous indie vocalist Irene Adlero.
WATSON AND HOLMES, conceived by New Paradigm Studios’ Publisher BRANDON PERLOW and writer/artist PAUL MENDOZA, is a re-envisioning of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson as African Americans living in New York City’s famous Harlem district. Watson, an Afghanistan war vet, works in an inner-city clinic; Holmes, a local P.I. who takes unusual cases.
The physical investment reward copies printed in this Kickstarter will only be printed for this campaign as a Kickstarter exclusive. NO WHERE ELSE. Plus all physical WATSON AND HOLMES copies will be signed by the creative team. 
Not to mention we have a slew of other exciting investment returns that include being drawn in one of our premiere titles to original artwork done by Rick Leonardi, N.Steven Harris, Dennis Calero, etc.

As you can see from the artwork alone, WATSON AND HOLMES is an amazing project, but they have also won a Glyph Award and been nominated for two Eisners!
Please help us get Volume Two on the shelves!


ONLY 50 HOURS LEFT…

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm….

Just saw someone in a tag saying that you aren’t a true Sherlock Holmes fan unless you’ve read the canon.

Nope.

You’re a true fan if you love Sherlock Holmes and John Watson and their crazy stupid adventures.

That’s all you need.

You like the thing.

For anyone visiting London: the essential pilgrimage stops

Featuring classics like ‘somewhere here is the bum itch bench’, ‘John walks his sass along the street’ and ‘dead body beach’.

Uhhhhh I WANT THAT MAP MARIA.

Not for the first time, my brain woke me up in the middle of the night and this time it whispered “What lessons would they teach at the Sherlock School of Dance?” It then refused to let me go back to sleep until I’d written this silly list. So are you prepared to burn… the dancefloor?

hahahahahaha ohmygod I guess then I am all for Hudson Hustle as I do bellydance!

SH – stairway to mind palace

Drawing finally done! Started 3 months ago, It took a way longer than I expected. I thought that drawing in white on black would be easier but not at all. The thing is, to have white really really white, I had to draw so many times that I’ve lost count (I killed 3 entire pencils to achieve it.)

The process was so long also because of the large size of the drawing; the principal difficult was to do all these different lightings and shadows. My favourite part was to draw Sherlock climbing the stairs; I loved to draw the shadow on his coat and the staircase. But I didn’t enjoy so much drawing the hair of the profile, it drove me crazy! I was really happy when I put my signature at the end.

Credit to Ian Derry for the 2 wonderful reference photos I’ve used:

He also inspired me the idea for the composition of the drawing with this post.

See here, the work in progress:

White and light grey pencils on black paper - size 65x50cm (26”x20”)

A bit ahead of schedule, but we’re not complaining, right? I still intend to do my series of pictures and fun facts and historical trivia as we get closer to having it published on all platforms (Barnes and Noble, Apple, Sony, and so forth) but as you guys found out it was already available for purchase before I did (seriously, you’re awesome) if you’d like, you can go ahead and buy it here.

SPREADING THE WORD FOR ALL HISTORICAL FICTION LOVERS: awesome book by an equally awesome author!

Trying my hand at some non-secret commissions!

  • Full upfront payment and only through paypal.
  • I’ll send you a sketch which you can approve or ask for a few (minor) revisions. Then I will work on the final version!
  • You can get the original drawing for an additional €3, no matter where you live. If you want that and pick a line commission, make sure to tell me in advance so that I draw it traditionally!
  • Prices for two characters are for them interacting. Two separate characters will be counted as two separate commissions.
  • NO real people (with a few exceptions like actors and such) or sexual themes! Gore and nudity are a-okay though, and I might open more nsfw commissions at some point.
  • For private use only! Print it for yourself, share with friends, but don’t make money out of it.
  • If you’re interested, email me your ideas (characters, colours, themes) and references (pictures or descriptions) at tweedosaurus @ gmail.com (not tumblr ask or fanmail)

Thanks for reading! If you have any question, feel free to ask.
